    shooting at Lazenay French UT champs

    I am at Lazenay for the French UT championships which start on Thursday. I was at the shooting ground today for a quick look around and while it is not a bad ground, I think it is far too cramped. They have shoehorned in 8 setups but I honestly think they are far too close together. I was looking at one setup where a missed extreme right hand target from the adjacent setup was landing bang in the middle of what would be the straightaway target on this one! I know that even at the best grounds eg Lonato there is overlap from one setup to another ... but in my, admittedly limited, experience I have rarely seen a target land bang in the center of the adjacent setup... effectively interfering with three possible targets. On top of that we are expecting temperatures of up to 44C during the run up to the final couple of days... interesting times ahead

    Beretta 692 normal?

    Poorly machined part of the gun... but I don't think it is likely to cause any problems for you.

    Auto shoot and 100reg this sunday

    Just wanted to say thank you for another great shoot. The semi auto shoot had us in stitches again. It really is the most fun you can have with a shotgun! I shot an 81, which I didn’t think was too bad for a C class. See you at the next one!

    Beretta 692 normal?

    This was intriguing me so just had the 692 (2013 model I believe) out the cabinet and looked, it does NOT have those little holes/chips/ grooves.

    Is that 220 per thousand in Ireland , Pounds or Euros ? . I’m asking as I’ve a mate over there who comes over by ferry half a dozen times a year .

    Lining the safe is now a no go.. The material all jumbles up. and doesn't look good. may well make some gun socks to fit the stripped down shotgun

    Beretta 692 normal?

    How do you like the gun, I might be tempted to buy one myself?

    Beretta 692 normal?

    Apologies for the very late reply, have been mega busy. Got round to taking the ejectors out and there isn't a grove, Almost looks like it's a chip of some description. Hopefully won't give me any issues fingers crossed. Unless anyone knows different? I'll mention it when I get it serviced at some point. Cheers, S

    Sporting Shoots; where- and how was it? (2018)

    After reffing duties at the British fitasc at Westfield, the world fitasc at E J Churchill and yesterday at St Dials for the last welsh selection shoot, it was time to make amends to my wife, so the gun stayed in the cabinet and we had lunch in a cracking restaurant overlooking Swansea bay, the sun was warm and the wine chilled. Sometimes you just have to....

    Stayed closer to home today after last week's gallivanting. Court Farm. Nothing needing much lead although I found the line of one of the targets deceptive. Run of fairly decent form continues and I finished on 87.

    Sporting Shoots; where- and how was it? (2018)

    Nice cheap days shooting, took my son for his 2nd Sunday scoring duties and decided to follow friends round without shooting due to a headache which I didn't want to aggravate, pity as even the big names were off their usual pace. Back at the log cabin noticed a score of mixed varieties of chokes all priced at £10 each ! 2 Briley extended 1/2's and a 3/4 took my notice and just couldn't turn them down for £20 😁 😛.

    Sporting Shoots; where- and how was it? (2018)

    Made the journey up to Garlands today for the 120 bird semi auto shoot combined with a normal 100 bird registered. Shot the auto shoot first as wasn't feeling great so wanted to do the fun one in case I didn't feel up to both. It was really great fun! I ended up on 99/120 which (when I handed the card in) was 6th overall and 18 clear of the second person in B class. Hopefully that stuck. Ideally there would be more of these shoots, and hopefully at Westfields to save the extra travel. Then I got the OU out and shot the sporting course. Stands I straighted with the auto (not even needing full use) I struggled massively on. Seems to have a really very different sight picture? I seemed to be shooting in front of stuff with the OU. Ended on 72, so the wheels had definitely fallen off!

    The Barbury Pro One Challenge 2019

    What they do particularly well at Barbury is set targets that you really need to watch through the whole flight as they aren't always doing what you think they are. It's all too easy to see your score leak away there if you're too casual in your approach.

    Hammer it home

    Absolutely ! ! ! Putting a slug thru a choked barrel is a near certain disaster for at least the gun. That's a really cool gun. It would be wonderful if you can live with the chokes as the Ruskies were pretty up on making super chokes. The Ruskies did make some way nice guns. I've seen a couple that were just as fine as fine gets. And those bunker guns locked up like the proverbial bank vault. I don't know how they shot those stocks tho - OUCH!

    The Barbury Pro One Challenge 2019

    Haven’t been for a few years now. Last event I tried there was a police shoot last summer? Army maybe? Anyway it was totally oversold and I didn’t start as it would have been 4 hours to get round. I did enjoy a STR there about 2 years ago.

    Velocity v Superfast

    Antse7en, I have noticed the same thing,watching others take their turn, gun flying up on recoil ,seems some people dont like to cut there stocks to fit ? interestingly I rarely notice kick ,but did when a buddy slipped me some 28 g velocity, yet used them before and wasnt bad....how ever I got a box of the 26g velocity passed to me, no kick what so ever in the miroku,percieved by me I should add, but at that price and with the breaks I was getting certainly will be buying some.,felt wad bargain!!

    The Barbury Pro One Challenge 2019

    It will be interesting to see how this goes. I must be honest and say I have never enjoyed Barbury. It is usually a mix of soppy stands and then a load of brutal stands. On balance pretty hard.

    No I think it was a glitch on the site last night (or the Victorian internet at home) because it displayed your thread as newly started with no replies and I’d already read it days before.
